1st: TRADE!

Panthers trade away 8, 153, 2022 1st and 3rd for pick 3.


3: Justin Fields-  Panthers are rumored to Love this kid.  And a Lot of what Fitterer/Rhule is describing, you see Fields.  Putting my ear on the ground and listen/reading what they say.  I feel very much on this Prediction as my Brian Burns prediction the other year.  Fields also reminds me personally of Watson coming out who also fell some despite the tools.  The new QB coach we brought in who coached Watson will be a nice Pair with Fields.


2nd: TRADE!

Yes again.  The LA Rams aggressively trade away 57 and 101 to move up for edge rusher Azeez Ojulari.


57:  Richie Grant- Rhule fell in love.  You could see the twinkle in his eye.




Not only is Rhule the reason for this pick.  We talk about Fitterer drafting that Defense for Seattle.  And the Defenses identity was the Legion of Boom.  The Legion of Boom wasnt just known because Sherman.  It was know because the Safety Duo of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas.  You better believe Fitterer will love the Future going forward with Chinn and Grant together in the middle of the secondary.

73: James Hudson- Hudson is a High Ceiling OT prospect who slips into the 3rd with such a deep OT crop this year.  Hudson is fairly New to the OT position, the former defensive player made the transition to OT in 2017.  He transferred and had to sit out the 2019 season.  Finally getting his chance this year in 2020, he flashed.  He followed up with a good senior bowl week.

Seattle (where Fitterer is coming from)  never really hit OL Heavy early.  Since 2012, 2 of their 9 2nd rd picks have been OL and only 1 1st rd pick.  On par with the Panthers in that time frame.  They've hit on FA, Trades, and late rd picks on the OL.  Hudson fits that developmental guy this staff looks for

101: Aaron Banks- over a Overall rock Solid OG, who while has a good ceiling, its not quite as high as some of the guys that go before him.  Again, falls due to depth of the position.  Banks comes right in and can become a impact starter right away on the OL where both of our starters from the 2020 season are FA's


113: Jaylen Twyman- Good Value Pick here.  Twyman, some felt he would be a borderline 1st rd DL coming into this season.    A little small but good athlete, his stock has dropped some after sitting out this season and some other guys jumping him.  We have needed a nice penetrating 3-tech for a while since KK started getting hurt.  Brown was a Beast this season, but he also was among the top of the league in Double Teams seen.  In comes a guy like Twyman next to him to compliment him, and we're looking at one of the top DL in the NFL, especially if he comes close to his potential.





185: Shi Smith-  one guy who had a a good week on Rhule's Senior Bowl roster was Smith.  It is Highly unlikely Samuel is back for the Panthers next year.  And Smith is a good option to fill that Slot/WR3 role.
